On Your Mark, Get Set...Goals
It's the first part of March and I'm reviewing the goals I've set for myself this year.
I finally pinpointed how to fix my hero's GMC (goal, motivation and conflict) in a novella series. I've got a specific house to submit this to so I'm really excited about it.
My Young Adult paranormal is finished (but needs polishing) and I've got a specific house for it, too.
Time wise I'm a little behind schedule. I didn't plan on so many physical issues. Ah well, such is life.
The upside this year, I'm going to the Lori Foster Reader/Author event in June. I'll get to see two of my crit partners as well as talk to some industry professionals. Networking is vital in this business but it's something I enjoy.
Despite the downturn of the economy, I'm very optomistic about the publishing industry. The continuing upward trend of ebooks is encouraging as well.
So, I'm focused on finishing up projects and submitting. Keep checking back on the Daughters blog and my weekly blog at Writers Gone Wild for news.
My latest story Cowboy of the Night, part of the Legends of Loving, Texas series will be out soon from Red Rose Publishing.
